To the Editor:

On Oct. 5 the Walter J. Smith VFW Post 511 of New Britain will commemorate its 100th anniversary.

The VFW 511 has a long history in the New Britain community. The organization has helped numerous veterans readjust to civilian life, receive VA government earned benefits, as well as to promote good socialization skills. Also, the community at large has benefitted from the use of our large hall.

We have an honorable past with the city and we are looking forward to the next 100 years. This being said, we regret we cannot hold a grand celebration we had anticipated. This pandemic surely has changed our world.

We hope to have an outstanding celebration October 2021, mark your calendars.

Dennis Taricani
